This is the way I throw this fish together. I have tons of frozen tilapia in my freezer and this works for me - easy and low-sodium.

This was really good. I did cut the butter down. I only used a tablespoon per fillet. I also didn't add any lemon juice. I used 6 fillets and cooked at 350 for 30 minutes. We all enjoyed this.

This was very good. It came out moist but just a tad bland (for my tastes). I'll make it again, but with lots more lemon juice and a tiny bit of salt.

Tasty, easy recipe just like the title says. I didn't use any butter just sprayed a little "No Oil" on top of the fish, squeezed on the lemon ans sprinkled on the Old Bay. Lovely flavor - I used Basa filets, baked at 375 for 15 minutes
